Ive seen a fed ship pop out more Ai units than a Vo'quv(the Vo'quv at this point in time). You'd be amazed at how many mines one can deploy with a few mine lunachers, mine powers, a few tran/C.O.L. luanchers, scorp fighters, Photonic fleet, deployable phaser turret, and the emergency reinforment power.
I believe the Vo'Quv can do all those things as well. Thus a fed ship couldn't pop out more than a Vo'Quv. This is becoming irrelevant. Look, if we are already launching Romulan fighters, why not Fed fighters? You might as well count heavy torps in there too.
